|There's Something About Mcconkey

Ten years ago, young renegade ski racer Shane McConkey quit his collegiate team to pursue a career in the small, unglamorous world of freeskiing. Through the '90s, McConkey battled the odds and the establishment as he put "fun" back in skiing. With an unprecedented manner of attacking mountains and a committed effort to appear ridiculous, McConkey opened the doors to a new way of thinking and skiing. As attention to his feats and antics blossomed, so did the sport around him. We've teamed up the raddest skiers of today with the past decade's most influential skier and biggest idiot. So sit back for a wacky, whirlwind tour through a man, a mind and a sport. You may never look at skiing the same way again. 60 minutes.
Extreme skier Shane McConkey is the protagonist of this affably oddball documentary that features some suitably spectacular footage of McConkey casually doing what most skiers can only fantasize about. There are interviews with McConkey, who comes off as the laidback dude one might expect, as well as interviews with his mother and a few friends (one of whom tells a funny story proving that "there's something wrong with McConkey"). And a few comic interludes, including McConkey's attempt to star in a music video, pop up. But the real point to this production is the skiing footage, which is uniformly spectacular. McConkey and others (including Olympic champion Jonny Moseley) go rocketing down absurdly steep mountainsides in footage shot from helicopters, and of course they make it all seem so effortless that you can almost forget how insanely dangerous it is. And speaking of bodily peril, McConkey is also seen flying off ski jumping ramps backwards and gleefully sailing through space. As someone quips, "his radness can't be quantified." Keeping with the athlete-as-outlaw theme, there are also segments on BASE jumping, in which McConkey and others are seen parachuting from bridges, tall buildings, and mountainsides. Some of the film's humor is strained, but this is for the most part an entertaining look at a character who just can't get enough downhill excitement. --Robert J. McNamara

This showcase for some of the world's most fearless skiers benefits from beautiful camera work, a thumping soundtrack, and a skewed sense of humor. Masters of extreme skiing, including Jonny Mosely, Shane McConkey, and Seth Morrison, go hurtling down mountainsides so close to vertical that no normal person would think of skiing them. And of course the glorious footage, often shot from helicopters, makes it all seem absurdly easy. The genuine danger of this snowy showboating is illustrated in a segment in which Dean Cummings, while making a jump on a mountainside in Alaska, makes a slight error that sends him careening out of control. "I was dealt a pretty hard blow while tearing it," he comments, noting that he was lucky to come away with only a broken leg. A spectacular scene in which skiers are shown gracefully cavorting so high that they can look down on the clouds helps explain why people would be driven to such extremes. And for those who just can't get enough of a rush on skis, a comical sequence features intrepid and insane fellows who up the ante by roaring down impossible slopes on snowmobiles. Just about everything in Ski Movie is something you shouldn't even think about doing yourself, and that's what makes it so entertaining.
|Clendenin Ski Method: Finding the Love Spot
Lowest new price: $24.95
Lowest used price: $20.96
List price: $24.95
Love Spot: n -- 1) the moment of rapture in skiing; 2) a fleeting, edgeless moment in a ski turn experienced by all great skiers and the rest of us, who do not step, stem, or hop into a turn; 3) the spot where becoming begins.
I have to be honest-I stole the Clendenin Ski Method (CSM). The method was taken from watching and studying great skiers like Jean-Claude Killy, Stein Eriksen, Jonny Mosley, Andy Mill, Bode Miller, and Lindsey Vonn. One basic flaw separates most skiers from great skiers.
We may look good on groomed terrain, but as soon as we get into bumps or any place on the mountain that raises the hair on the back of our neck, all hell breaks loose. After a few turns we start fighting for control and look bad doing it.
The initial focus of the CSM is to correct this flaw at turn initiation. When this instinctive habit is corrected, magic begins. Graduates control speed with aligned bones, skiing is easier, less tiring, and looks a whole lot better.
Our DVD starts with the One-Day Lesson where a couple of boomers go from groomers to black diamond bumps in one enchanting day. You will see the CSM Keys cure their 'flu.' Cured, both start floating through the "Love Spot "-skiing smooth, confident, and controlled in black-diamond bumps.
"One-Day" is followed by six additional segments. Each segment begins with a 2-minute Keys to the Kingdom sequence aired on national television. Each introduction presents a bit of freestyle history with an educational slant. The educational slant is then enhanced with lesson footage creating ownership for the simple CSM Key to the Kingdom, the key to the delightful world of all-mountain skiing.
When we float in the Love Spot, our bones are stacked, we have control, skiing is easier and safer, and we begin to dance in the Kingdom.
